My Son Sanctuary
The My Son Ruins are a cluster of Hindu temples constructed sometime between the 4th and 14th centuries by the Champa civilization that once extended over a large part of coastal Vietnam. The ruins often get referred to as the Angkor Wat of Vietnam, though they are far from being as gigantic.
This UNESCO protected complex was once of religious and political importance and is now abandoned and unused—you won’t see any active worshiping or religious visitors. Over time, these temples have been destroyed, but only by human forces. You will even spot a few bullet holes as you step over stones and finger the cracks. The temples are, however, still standing since inception, and visiting these will let your mind wander back in time, picturing these enchanting ruins once full of life.
Head over in the morning to avoid the flocks of tourists.
